Corporate Secretary Think Tank – Canada
Exclusively for GRC professionals

Thursday, October 15, 2020

Norton Rose Fulbright, Toronto, Canada

About the think tank

The think tank is an invitation-only event exclusively for GRC professionals. It is free to attend and our unique format enables participants to network extensively, discuss, debate and dissect best practices and topical issues in the corporate governance world.

What makes our format so unique?
Our think tanks are far removed from the traditional conference set-up as the event consists of a series of panel sessions followed by roundtable discussions on select GRC issues. These interactive sessions are an opportunity to share experiences with and learn from other top-rated corporate governance professionals. All table discussions are confidential and none of the participants’ comments are attributed*. This allows attendees to talk freely and have frank, open discussions.

*While the panel discussions may be quoted in editorial coverage of the event, all table discussions are confidential.

How do our roundtable discussions work?

 Listen as seasoned GRC professionals discuss in detail their successful practices
 Learn key take-aways that you can implement immediately in your own practice
 Network with the best of the best in GRC
